I’m going to keep this post simple since I go into the details of the Rope-A-Dope IRA Funds National Religion on the program.
I am not not going to follow the trend of others and comment about the invasion of Mar-a-Lago. I will only say that – I told you so. I and a good number of other Constitutional speakers have been sounding the klaxon since 1984. No pun intended with the date. Few of the citizenry have paid attention. The least being the Evangelical pastors. No, we never wore tinfoil hats but only spoke the facts of what we saw and understood as predictable in a Godless society.
With that, if you want a rational and solid political analysis of the Mar-a-Lago invasion then you need to go to and pay attention to Doug Wilson’s post ‘Hanlon’s Razor and the Mar a Lago Raid.’
The Rope-A-Dope here is Senator Manchin covering up for the full impact of the IRA (Inflation Reduction Act). He won out on his key energy project for West Virginia while enslaving the rest of the Republic. The Mar-a-Lago invasion is also part of the cover used by the O’Biden Administration and the high-priest of globalist ideologies such that the IRA benefits the global financial industry, China and the National Religion of Environmentalism.
Yupper, the other boxing champ in the arena is AZ Sen. Kyrsten Sinema who insisted on keeping the carried-interest loophole that allows investment managers (like her former bosses) to shield the majority of their income from higher taxes.
The private equity industry was able to gain an additional win shortly before the final passage of the bill when a handful of Democrats broke with their party to vote on a Republican amendment that created a carveout for private equity-owned companies in the corporate minimum tax. -Bloomberg
The reality is that the Constitutional Republic of these United Stats just took a massive beating in the ring where Liberty should be the winner.
Comments by De Tocqueville
I began to reread ‘Democracy in America.’ This time I a paying more attention to the Introduction. Very insightful. Before I get to what I want you to have from the Introduction, let me remind you of this:
‘We are sleeping on a volcano… A wind of revolution blows, the storm is on the horizon.’ 1848
‘They call, in fact, for the forfeiture, to a greater or less degree, of human liberty, to the point where, were I to attempt to sum up what socialism is, I would say that it was simply a new system of serfdom.’ Notes for a Speech on Socialism (1848)
‘As for me, I am deeply a democrat; this is why I am in no way a socialist. Democracy and socialism cannot go together. You can’t have it both ways.’ Same 1848 speech.
‘Even despots accept the excellence of liberty. The simple truth is that they wish to keep it for themselves and promote the idea that no one else is at all worthy of it. Thus, our opinion of liberty does not reveal our differences but the relative value which we place on our fellow man. We can state with conviction, therefore, that a man’s support for absolute government is in direct proportion to the contempt he feels for his country.’
Specifically from Democracy in America:
‘There is in fact a manly and legitimate passion for equality that spurs all men to wish to be strong and esteemed. This passion tends to elevate the lesser to the rank of the greater. But one also finds in the human heart a depraved taste for equality, which impels the weak to want to bring the strong down to their level, and which reduces men to preferring equality in servitude to inequality in freedom.’ Chapter III, Part I
‘Furthermore, when citizens are all almost equal, it becomes difficult for them to defend their independence against the aggressions of power.’ Chapter III.
‘Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot. How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie is not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed? And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity?’ Chapter XVII.
Relevant to the IRA legislation:
‘The territorial aristocracy of former ages was either bound by law, or thought itself bound by usage, to come to the relief of its serving-men and to relieve their distresses. But the manufacturing aristocracy of our age first impoverishes and debases the men who serve it and then abandons them to be supported by the charity of the public.’ Book Two, Chapter XX.
‘The foremost, or indeed the sole condition which is required in order to succeed in centralizing the supreme power in a democratic community, is to love equality, or to get men to believe you love it. Thus the science of despotism, which was once so complex, is simplified, and reduced as it were to a single principle.’ Book Four, Chapter IV.
I really appreciate this quote because this is now these United States:
‘After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the government then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence: it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.’ Book Four, Chapter VI.
Sam Adams Wisdom
From the Rights of The Colonists:
‘Every natural right not expressly given up, or, from the nature of a social compact, necessarily ceded, remains.
All positive and civil laws should conform, as far as possible, to the law of natural reason and equity. As neither reason requires nor religion permits the contrary, every man living in or out of a state of civil society has a right peaceably and quietly to worship God according to the dictates of his conscience.
“Just and true liberty, equal and impartial liberty,” in matters spiritual and temporal, is a thing that all men are clearly entitled to by the eternal and immutable laws of God and nature, as well as by the law of nations and all well-grounded municipal laws, which must have their foundation in the former.
In regard to religion, mutual toleration in the different professions thereof is what all good and candid minds in all ages have ever practised, and, both by precept and example, inculcated on mankind. And it is now generally agreed among Christians that this spirit of toleration, in the fullest extent consistent with the being of civil society, is the chief characteristical mark of the Church. Insomuch that Mr. Locke has asserted and proved, beyond the possibility of contradiction on any solid ground, that such toleration ought to be extended to all whose doctrines are not subversive of society. The only sects which he thinks ought to be, and which by all wise laws are excluded from such toleration, are those who teach doctrines subversive of the civil government under which they live…’
